Planar Traveler[edit]

As a Planar Traveler, you through one means or another have managed to move between Planes. This may be through a means known or unknown to you, but never the less it has left a mark on you. You are now not only of one world, and those tied to the Planes can feel it. You may have managed to return to your Plane of origin, or you may be stuck on a new Plane. Have you been on this Plane for a long time, or are you a recent arrival? Do you know the means by which you traveled the Planes, or are you still searching for them? Maybe you're a grizzled veteran of Planar travel, or maybe this is your first time doing so.

Skill Proficiencies: Perception, Survival

Tool Proficiencies: Cartographer's Tools

Languages: Primordial

Equipment: A set of common clothes, Cartographer's Tools, a belt pouch containing 10 GP, and a special token of a Plane

Feature: Plane Marked[edit]

You are a being of many Planes, and they have all left a mark on you. As beings especially in tune with the Planes themselves, Elementals can feel these marks and see you at least partially as one of them. Intelligent elementals are neutral towards you, and will oftentimes attempt to open a dialogue before simply attacking you. This benefit, however, is not necessarily shared by those around you.

Suggested Characteristics[edit]

As a traveler of multiple Planes, you are among the most worldly beings imaginable.
